Black Cohosh (Actaea racemosa)

Black Cohosh: Actaea racemosa, or black cohosh, is a native perennial species growing throughout shady locations throughout most of North America. It's not surprising to find this species thriving untended, in unexpected places around the United States--on ditch banks, in the filtered sunshine in wooded areas, or at the edges of a forest.

The black cohosh perennial is a partial-shade lover. It is also good-natured and requires only minimum care. You'll water it during extended times without rainfall and occasionally add hardwood mulch to the soil. Once you provide those growing conditions, you will do little else to encourage healthy growth.

Black Cohosh Is a Picturesque Plant

Black cohosh is rustic and charming, impressively sized, with a maximum height of three to six feet. The single stem branches into lovely dark green leaves. Each leaf is compound, comprised of three toothy-edged leaflets, and grows to a substantial size. The effect is stunning, large, dense foliage.

The stems are sturdy and erect, supporting the showy, abundant creamy-white flowers. The flowers grow in enormous clusters, and the pattern creates a fluffy, cotton-candy appearance. They display this show of color during the middle of summer in most growing zones.

How to Use Black Cohosh in Your Landscape

Black cohosh is rustic and charming. Here are four ideas of how to put this lovely plant to use:

  • Near a shady water garden, creek, or stream: Black cohosh likes moist soil as long as it drains well.
  • Native gardening: Experienced gardeners know that planting native species creates a more resilient, less-demanding experience--black cohosh is no exception.
  • Border planting: This plant can reach six feet, so it makes an impressive addition to the back row of a border.
  • Pollinator garden: Besides birds, black cohosh will also invite butterflies, bumblebees, small mammals, and moths--all of which will promote healthy pollination. Not only will they enjoy the pollen, but they'll also enjoy taking cover in the lovely foliage.
